Everton Complete Double Swoop for Barcelona’s Mina & Gomes

Everton Complete Double Swoop for Barcelona’s Mina & Gomes

Everton have wrapped up what proved to be a highly active transfer deadline day by confirming that both Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes have joined the club from Barcelona.

Manchester United and Lyon had both tracked Colombia global Mina, who signed a five-year deal after Barca sanctioned his £27.2 million sale.

Everton had a dramatic end to the window, wrapping up deals for Bernard - the Brazil global who arrived on a free from Shakthar Donetsk - and Andre Gomes, the Portuguese midfielder who had also been at Barcelona.

'It is important that the club want to fight for something, ' Mina told evertontv.

Many players ticketed for new locales stayed put past Thursday's Premier League summer transfer deadline.

At global level, he was also part of the Brazil team who won the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup and played for his country at their home World Cup in 2014.

Everton signed Richarlison from Watford last month, with the Toffees paying an initial £35m for the Brazilian, although the deal could eventually reach £50m. His form for them was so good he has been awarded 13 caps for Brazil, although he was not part of their squad that went to the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

"The manager made me feel confident about playing here". This is a great opportunity for me and I am looking forward to competing here.

The 25-year-old has played 29 times for his country.

Everton's season-long loan deal for Portugal's Gomes will see them pay 2.25 million euros and the player's wages.

Mina's stock soared during Colombia's run in the World Cup in which he was responsible for three goals, allowing Barcelona to make over three times what they paid.
